Tax lien expires in 15 years. Interest rate negotiated on the tax certificate was probably 18%. In 15 years with interest the lien will be approximately $2100.00 and they will require you to pay Court costs and attorney fees to avoid the property going to Sheriff's Sale. It is not something...

I agree with Attorney Jaap, but would add that a boundary line dispute if it goes to litigation will result in your neighbor paying some of the costs, and ornamental trees damages are trebled.
He never left my property. He is staying in a camper in my yard. We have no agreement of any kind yet he refuses to leave. I live in Ohio and need him gone. This is causing me terrible stress and raising my blood pressure. Do I have to evict him although there is no lease agreement?
answered on May 18, 2022
Yes, you should evict him. He does not have a oral lease for a period of term. He is a person with no interest in the property and he can be served a three day notice and a complaint for forcible entry and detainer should be filed against him. If you call the police they will typically say it is... Read more »
I have not paid any money to the roofing company yet. I know Ohio has some type of Buyers Remorse Law. So, I am really just curious if I can just cancel this roofing contract without any legal ramifications?
answered on May 18, 2022
Most likely the Home Solicitation Sales Act would apply, and it requires the contract to provide you with notice of your right to cancel. The contract should also provide you with a form Cancellation. Send that form in to cancel.
If no notice given then you can cancel at anytime, but... Read more »
Would I have any claim to the house?
answered on May 4, 2022
Sorry for your loss.
The lender who hold the mortgage should treat you as a successor in interest and continue to accept payments on the mortgage from you as well as discuss loss mitigation options with you if you have fallen behind as a result of your husband's recent passing.

A loan does not entitle a person to garnish your wages. They would have to obtain a judgment against you, and garnish wages based upon the judgment obtained against you.

In my limited experience with Ohio's Medicaid recovery unit they made it appear that they would place a lien on the house but not attempt to execute on the lien until the title transfers through an estate or sale.

To be certain an attorney should review your purchase agreement. Most that I have seen allow you to terminate the contract if the appraisal comes in lower, but you usually have to notify the seller that you are terminating the contract within a specific amount of time
